Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.

Heavenly Father, open my eyes of faith to see Your illustrations of love in the interruptions of my life today. Lord, help me see these moments as opportunities to love and to accept Your love and the love of others. Help me share the good news of Your great love with everyone I know. Slow me down, so that I can receive and give to others. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Saint John Baptist de La Salle…pray for us.

Live Jesus in our hearts…forever!

On today’s calendar…

To all ninth grade and new families to DeLaSalle for the 2017-18 school year:  You will see something different on your December TADS invoice.  When you paid a registration fee last spring or summer, your registration fee was not added to your tuition agreement for the 2017-18 school year.  This charge as well as payment are being added to your current tuition agreement so at tax return time you will have an accurate account of tuition paid to DeLaSalle in the calendar year of 2017.  One of the features in TADS is you can log in and download a report for tuition paid in a specific school year.  If you have any questions, please contact Ron Rice at 612-676-7601 or at

Around Christmas Time, for the past 25 years, DeLaSalle High School has “adopted” several families through Sponsor a Family Minnesota and the Aliveness Project. This year we will be adding gifts for homeless youth through Sharing and Caring Hands and Avenues for Homeless Youth. Our “adoptees” have benefited greatly from our generous spirit. Last year the students and staff brought in over $4,000 and we hope to beat that number this year. Several teachers have graciously agreed to be the money collection point for each grade level. Donate money in 9th and 10th grade Theology Classes, 11th and 12th grade English Classes. Money collection is daily and began on Wednesday, November 8 and runs through Friday, December 1. Thank you in advance for your generosities.

Anyone who would like to go Christmas Shopping for our adoptive families, please sign up here. You must be logged into your google apps account. We will shop after school on Friday, December 1 from 3:15-5:30 p.m. Christian Service hours WILL NOT be awarded for this event.
